Welcome to the full launch of Foundation Beyond Belief! Foundation membership is now open, and our first slate of beneficiaries is in place.
And what a slate it is. There’s an organization of scientists committed to biodiversity, another providing health care to marginalized communities on five continents, and a secular alternative for addiction recovery. There’s a non-profit bringing safe drinking water to people in desperate need, an advocacy group for refugees fleeing war, and another for asylum seekers fleeing torture. A scholarship fund for GLBT students who have been disowned by their families. An organization protecting children in war zones, and another protecting the environment by working toward "greener" buildings and cities.
Selecting them has been a challenging and powerful experience. In the end, we chose a wide range of organizations in size, budget, mission, and scope. Now members will choose which of these organizations they will support with a percentage of their monthly donations—which in turn can inform our future selections.
It’ll be like watching the evolution of humanist philanthropy.
So take a little time to explore our featured charities by clicking on the fancy sliding menus at the edge of the banner above, then click Join FBB, select the amount of your monthly donation, and distribute it as you see fit among the ten cause areas.
